My wife and I decided to eat an early lunch at Mamacita's. We had been there years ago (for our first date actually), so we decided we'd check it out to see if things had changed. Luckily for us, they hadn't. The service was awesome. The young man who waited on us made sure that our drinks never went empty,... More

Not a terrible restaurant, not a great one either. Just average food. Very nice staff though which makes a huge difference on deciding to return or not. Food was kinda bland. Cheese enchiladas just cheesy. Chicken in quesadillas was cold. Guacamole was just mashed avocado, nothing added.

I went to Mamacita's while in town based solely on reviews here on tripadvisor. I wasn't sorry with my decision. The food tasted great and the portions were large. In addition to get chips and salsa, you also get another avocado/sour cream (I think) dip. The staff were friendly and attentive. Despite being busy, our food arrived quickly.

Several moms out to dinner on Sat. eve. excellent service and great food. I ordered the Shrimp Fajitas, I substituted corn tortillas because of my gluten allergy. Lots of food, and no room for dessert.

I visit alot of Mexican Food Restaurants and this one rates up there with the very best! For starters you have to try their green sauce. I don't know what is made from, but I think there's something highly addictive in it! They make the flour tortillas so of course those are great too. But the Chili Releno is one... More

I lived in San Marcos years ago and used to go here about once a week. The food is amazing (especially the steak fajitas). The salsa is perfection, and service is great. This place also has a fun and inviting atmosphere. I have actually driven the four hours back to San Marcos just to eat here. It's that good.

This was our first visit to this location. The food was unfortunately just average. I love the green sauce and tortillas they are the best. I will go back just for the green sauce. My favorite location is in Kerrville and then the next would be Fredericksburg. I'm sure we will come back when we visit the granddaughter at college.

I went to two mexican places while on my business trip. This was by far my favorite. The chips were hot and the salsa was full of flavor. I ordered the chicken fajitas and the portion was huge! Some of the chicken was stuck to the bottom of the skillet, but the onions/peppers and the fresh tortillas made up for... More
